Ed Penney

Ed was born in Manchester but moved to Snowdonia, North Wales, in 1976. He has two adult sons and four grandchildren.

He always loved creative writing at school but then life got in the way! He started writing again part-time in 1990, mostly for the stage. These were annual pantomimes and comedy sketches for the local am-dram group. He has been writing full-time since 2009. 

As well as being a novelist, Ed is also a screenwriter and dramatist and has been commissioned to write the scripts for Russell Grant for several stage musicals.

Ed's romantic-comedy two-hander play 'Butterfly in Shades of Blue' was staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014 and garnered a 'highly recommended' review from Paul Levy [Fringe Review].

The Girl With The White Flag is a gritty and realistic, noir, psychological thriller. Two sequels are in the pipeline, featuring the cynical anti-hero, Eddy Boyle.
